From the train

I did a day trip up to Vancouver BC a few days ago and popped this off on the train up in the morning.

The working mans screen caps

As I work on stuff, I every time I have something that I like, I screen capture it. Just a single image, then most of the time I let myself forget the context and continue working at a fervent pace. Here’s some of those recent captures with maybe a little bit about them. If I remember.Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 10.15.11 PMStarting easy, this is from tonight. I’m a little nervous about tomorrow’s 3d work since it’s been a month or so since I’ve really used more than 2.5 dees. So my solution is to do style renders tonight so I can go in tomorrow and look like I know what I’m doing on the fly.

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 11.57.48 AMThe other day the store didn’t have pumpkin pie. So I drew my own.

Screen Shot 2015-09-27 at 5.51.03 PMPokemon fusion¬†understands me like nothing else. I’ve been adding backgrounds to these sprites in my fleeting spare moments. I’ll make a dump of just these soon as I have enough.

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 5.17.01 PMWell this is just shameless self promotion. A reel leftover.

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 6.50.03 PMI don’t remember what this came from, but I’d bet dollars to doornails it was tracking.

IMG_1614This is a shitty selfie from playing bikes. I don’t actually think this belongs here.

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 4.43.43 PMA warm up sketch from an illustration I got to do for a Discovery Channel show.

Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 5.11.22 PMSide by side before and afters of a tele that I used. I redid some colors, and made the screen 1:1 instead of 4:3.

Wine LabelsSomething from an early round of ideas with a wine video. I think these may have gotten scrap or reinvented.

Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 2.32.13 PMA still from another spare time project to figure out how to set up a physical render with GI and AO to have stable shadows. It’s gotten close, but so very far at the same time.

Tune in next time for rotoscoped graphics without the video layer!

The Show at the Beach

Watching reflections is always enjoyable. This held true on the fourth of July as well.

I spent the night watching for the flicker of a lighter, then get ready to start the long exposure.

The glowing orb is the moon. It’s been bright these past nights.

I have dozens of these, but I feel like the novelty of it wears off quick.

But I may as well include one more for good measure.

And to follow the tradition, I took some normal fireworks photos as well.FinishedIMG_1932

This looks small, but for scale reference, look at the house and the people in the lower left corner. It was definitely not small.

This looks like a palm tree, which means it’s about time for me to make like a tree and leaf!
